Support at Home and Abroad from St Mary’s
Acts 1: 8 says we are to share the Good News of Christ, witnessing to Him by serving our neighbour in every corner of the earth. Our mission is not about simply words, but about action.
The Community of the Resurrection, Mirfield, has had many links with Zimbabwe for the past 100 years. In 2009, Fr Carl Melville, who was on placement with us as a Pastoral Assistant in 2010, worked with CR to form the ‘Tariro Youth Project‘, which opened an orphanage for teenagers in Harare in August. Tariro (which means ‘hope’) House was opened for teenagers aged 14 upwards. There is a chronic lack of resources in the country to help teenage and other disadvantaged children and youth, often orphaned.
As well as trying to help abroad we support charities and good causes at home such as Handsworth Foodbank, The Archer Project, Christian Aid, The Royal British Legion,Help the Heros and The Children’s Society.
We would like to do more! With your donations, we can!
